Clinical Trial Summary

This study evaluates the efficacy of erythropoietin in refractory autoimmune encephalitis. Ten patients will receive 100 IU/kg of erythropoietin 3 times a week for 12 weeks.


Clinical Trial Description

Erythropoietin can improve the refractory autoimmune encephalitis. Erythropoietin has tissue-protective effect via activation of Janus kinase (JAK)-2, signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT)-5 pathway and NF-kappa B pathway. The activation of JAK-2 and STAT-5 promote hemoglobin synthesis and facilitate cell cycle progression. Also, NF-kappa B pathway inhibition regulates pro-inflammatory cytokine production.

We expect that erythropoietin may lead to improve the symptoms and outcome of autoimmune encephalitis. ;
